The purpose of EEF's Classroom Grant Program (formerly called EEF Mini-Grants Program) is to provide funding for TUSD classroom or library projects that expand curriculum beyond the standard educator delivery and student learning experience. All projects funded by EEF's Classroom Grant Program substantively enrich the classroom experience, teach critical thinking skills, promote creative problem-solving, stimulate a lifelong interest in learning, model effective communication and collaboration, and explore concepts, ideas, and principles beyond the core curriculum.

EEF Classroom Grants do not cover the cost of basic needs such as clothing, shoes, eyeglasses, general school supplies, or food. If you are a TUSD educator seeking assistance for a student in these areas, please contact EEF's office directly for information about EEF's programs that address these needs and how your school can access them.
